I am so, so fed up, I want this bloody pregnancy over and done with. Feeling sick (as usual) and have tummy ache with horrible gurgling wind (ibs) and I have to take dd to her swimming lesson in an hour or so.
This wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have to drive 8 miles to get to the pool and I have to go no matter how crap I feel because she absolutely loves her lessons. I let her down 3 weeks ago as I felt so ill I couldn't get her there and I refuse to do that again as she was really upset.
So I am sat here panicking, which is making me feel a thousand times worse. Having ibs and being emetophobic is really not a good combination in pregnancy, especially since I am still getting the nausea at 31 weeks. I can't wait til the end of Jan for this little one to be out, sleepless nights will be so much easier than constantly feeling ill.
You poor thing, that sounds horrible. Sounds like you could do with putting your feet up for a bit - is there someone else that could take your DD to her lesson?
I'm only 11 weeks with my first so I'm struggling a bit with morning sickness, it sucks but I've only had 6 weeks of it - can't imagine how shite it must be to still have it at 31 weeks (not to mention IBS and emetophobia!) You have my sympathy.
If you really have to go could you suck on a mint or a boiled sweetie while you drive?
Hi Serena, no there is no-one else who can help out. I live 200 miles away from my family and dp is at work and doesn't drive.
I can cope with pretty much anything except feeling sick, yet I get lots of upset tummies because of my ibs ect. I can handle coughs, colds, headaches etc no problem, but I virtually never get any of those sorts of illnesses, whereas dd and dp seem to have cold after cold.
My iron levels are shit. I phoned the dr today and asked for different iron tablets as I have not been able to take the full dose of the ones I was prescribed, they really made my ibs play up. So we'll see how these new ones go.
Poor you that you're still vomiting, I am lucky that I have not thrown up, just had the constant nausea and tummy upsets instead. Although sometimes I feel so sick I wish I could puke, despite my emetophobia!
I am getting days where the nausea is only very low in the background which is great, but weekends I always feel awful. I am presuming that is psychological.
I really hope you feel better soon Julez, how far along are you now?
Sorry just came back to this - glad you made it to swimming, well done you. I think I'd have curled up in a ball and cried, but I guess you can't really do that when you've got other DCs to think about (can you tell this is my first?!). Hope the next few weeks pass as quickly as possible for you.
